Thick, rich, voluptuous and full bodied with a massive finish, drink this sensational white anytime over the coming two to three decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

Vibrant, minerally and sharply focused on the highly perfumed nose, displaying an array of ripe citrus and orchard fruit aromas and deeper fig and honey qualities. Sappy and incisive on the palate; a vibrant mineral quality gives lift to the flavors of bitter pear skin, tangerine and honeysuckle. Deftly melds power and finesse, the mineral and floral component dominating the very long, seamless finish. -- Josh Raynolds

A rich, enticing style, with creamed pear, melon and apple fruit flavors. Lightly toasted hazelnut and matchstick hints weave through the finish, with a mirabelle plum note lingering longest. Drink now through 2027...   A rich, enticing style, with creamed pear, melon and apple fruit flavors.
